Check out the latest BS from the team
18 September 2014
a darkening of the Greenland ice sheet could impact upon the entire world, as the hastening trend reduces the Arctic’s ability to reflect sunlight and increases global warming.
The world’s leading expert on the ice that covers the huge expanse of Greenland has told The Independent that he was “stunned” to see how much darker it has become in the past year – warning it could start a hugely damaging “cascading feedback loop” of the area becoming blacker as less and less light is reflected.
Every summer, the snow along a 50 mile strip of western Greenland turns black from soot; glacial grinding and dust. I have seen this from the air since at least 1998, and commented about it several times on the blog. But then new snow falls. The image below is what Greenland looked like yesterday. Zinc oxide white.
The BS just never ends from these people.
